It’s my birthday!

Hi Guys!! Guess what?? IT’S MY BIRTHDAY TODAY!!!!

mia_bdayhat

Sigh…Mom, is this birthday hat really necessary? Why do you always have to humiliate me?

I turn two years old! My humom can’t believe I’m already two. She still calls me her baby (and says I still act like one sometimes…hmph!) She still misses my puppy days because I was so cute and tiny and much easier to handle. BOL!

I always celebrate my birthday with my BFF Wilhelmina because her birthday is only a couple of weeks before mine! If you missed her birthday post, you can click here!

My humom was being a big pain in the butt persistent about getting a photo of me and Wilhelmina with our birthday cake. I couldn’t understand why until I heard her tell Wilhelmina’s humom that she wanted to recreate the same photo every year so they could look back and compare all the years. Sheesh! Who cares! Just give us the cake!

Happy 2nd Birthday to us!

This is what we looked like on our first birthday!

first bday

Look how much smaller we were! Wilhelmina definitely grew a lot! We were small enough that we could fit in the photo without my humom standing on a stool.  But this year she had to get a small stool and stand higher to fit us in the picture because Wilhelmina is so tall!

My second year has been quite eventful!

I moved into a new place with my humom and furbrother Keiko…

Where to mom? I’m ready!

…Sadly, we had to say good bye to Keiko…(my humom isn’t ready to talk about it yet)…Keiko I miss you, even though we never played together I still miss your presence. You were an amazing big brother, thank you for being so patient with me and putting up with me. ❤

Rest in Peace Keiko (Nov 2003-Oct 2017)

…but I got a new annoying fursibling…(now I know how Keiko felt! BOL!)

Meet my ‘little’ sister Nymeria!

And now I have to share a lot of things with her…like my birthday treats!

My joint birthday party with Wilhelmina is this weekend but my humom wanted to me to have some treats to eat on my actual birthday so she got me these!

They all look delicious!!!

The obligatory balance on the nose trick…sigh…

My humom tried to get a group photo with us and the treats but Nymeria wasn’t being very cooperative so she gave up and just let us choose one.

Nymeria! Why won’t you look at the camera!

Thanks Mom! Happy Birthday Mia!

My humom was also making some dog treats for me us so she let us lick the spoon!! Yummmm! peanut butter!

Nymeria: What’s peanut butter? I don’t think I’ve ever had that before…

Mia: Try it! It’s AMAZING!!!!! 

Nymeria: Hmmm! You’re right! This stuff is delicious!

Gotta get every last bit!

Man..I’m beat…Who knew that eating treats, doing tricks and licking a peanut butter spoon would be so tiring!

Happy Labour Day!

As promised our humoms took us to low tide today! As you can see, Wilhelmina was really excited, she was ready to go!

IMG_8071

IMG_8066

IMG_8059

Wilhelmina: Alright Mia, the beach is ours for the taking, what should we do first?

IMG_8090

We started with a bit of wrestling, even Duffy wanted to get in on it!

IMG_8087

And then the chase was on!

IMG_8111

Weeee!!!! This is our happy place!

SPLISH! SPLASH!

Then we played with some doggies, doing more splashing!

Of course, a day with the humoms means there is some mandatory posing for the camera…*rolleyes*

IMG_8227

What’s a day at the beach without chasing some birds?

IMG_8340

Some synchronized running!

We finished off with some wrestling in the sand!

IMG_8366

IMG_8370

Just when we thought the day was over….WE WERE TAKEN TO THE STORE TO GET BATHS!!!!!

IMG_8402

IMG_8404

I think Duffy was the only one that actually enjoyed it!

IMG_8406

I guess it was still worth it, we had a pretty fantastic time at the beach today. Hope you guys all had a great long weekend! Stay cool my furiends!

Duffy: I am Duffy! HEAR ME ROAR!

Friday Fun with a couple of Huskies!

It’s always a fun time when I go to the beach with Wilhelmina but it’s an even better time when we can find dogs to play with together!

I’ll admit…sometimes I can get a little jealous when Wilhelmina plays with another dog…but when there’s enough dogs around I loosen up and play with everyone.

Mia: Look Wilhelmina! A couple of Huskies! Let’s so go see if they want to play!

 

Wilhelmina: Yup!  I think they do! The chase is on!

 

 

These huskies are fast!

We each had a husky to play with! We had a great time!

Happy Friday Friends! Have a great weekend!

Friday Fun with a new friend!

It’s always a fun time at the beach, especially when I go with my bestie Wilhelmina. But this time it was extra special because with met another dog that I follow on Instagram! Her name is Pyper and it was her humans that recognized me because they follow my instagram too!

We look like we could be sisters!

My humom tried to get a group shot of us but it was mission possible. C’mon, what do you expect?? We’re at the beach…with new friends..and you want us to stay still? Human, please….

What’s that over there?

They want us to look at the camera…pfft. Silly humans.

Sniff sniff…your ear smells nice!

Enough of this photo taking! Lets have some fun!

If you want to know more about Pyper and her family, check out her Instagram page!

Happy Friday friends! Hope you’re enjoying the summer so far!

Monday Blues? Just shake it off!

I’m not always a fan of Mondays. I think my humom hates them more than I do. I don’t mind it as much because I get to go to doggy daycare on Mondays! She has to go to work because “somebody has to pay for my food and daycare” watever that means! If she doesn’t have her tea or coffee in the morning she can get super grumpy.

I should just tell her to SHAKE IT OFF! It’s really quite simple…you just close your eyes…plant all 4 paws (in her case her two feet) on the ground and SHAKE SHAKE SHAKE! You feel so much better after!

Friday Favorites – Low Tide!

It’s Fri-YAY!!! Hoooray!!!! Hope everyone had a great week! The weather is starting to warm up here in Vancouver and it’s forecast to be hot and sunny!

I can’t wait to go to the beach!

IMG_4821

One of my favorite times to go to the beach is when its low tide!!!

IMG_4825

IMG_4827

Of course, I wouldn’t go without my BFF Wilhelmina! We always have so much fun splashing in the water and finding things to eat! (Much to the disgust of our humans)

Check out my Instagram video below when we went last week!

Tongue Out Tuesday with Keiko!

It’s Tongue Out Tuesday and I thought I would share some photos of Keiko! He’s so photogenic I need to get some tips from him!

Look how cute this guy was at 6 months! (2004)

He loved car rides too! Keiko and our humom had many adventures!

Car rides are the best! (2004)

 

Fun at the dog park! (2007 & 2008)

Keiko’s 10th Birthday!!! (2013)

Keiko also loves hanging out at the beach! As long as he’s far away from the water, he’s not a fan! Can you believe he’s 12 in this photo?? (2015)

Look at this handsome guy! He doesn’t age! He’s 13 in this photo! (2017)

Hope you all enjoyed Keiko’s photos! Have a great Tuesday!
